Keyboard Conversations® with Jeffrey Siegel: Classics Declassified

Uncover the mysteries behind some of the most familiar piano works by Beethoven, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Debussy, and more in Classics Declassified. Virtuoso pianist Jeffrey Siegel acts as your musical detective and guide to unlock the intrigue and beauty of Beethoven’s “Farewell Sonata”—who was leaving, and why was the composer so deeply affected? Uncover what is Turkish about Mozart’s “Turkish Rondo,” understand how Rachmaninoff could grow to hate one of his best-known solo works, the C-Sharp minor Prelude, and discover the reasons why Debussy was so reluctant to publish Clair de Lune. Jeffry Siegel’s “concerts with commentary” format gives the back story behind the piece he is about to perform. “A musical bridge-builder in action...Siegel showed just how illuminating the combination of words and abstract music can be” (Toronto Star). An interactive question and answer session will conclude this program.
